Expectation form

To get a good understanding of the mutual expectations between student and supervisor, concerning doctoral studies and supervision, the following form can be used as a starting point for the discussions. It is recommended to do this at an early stage, but also to revisit the document later as the studies progress. Please indicate in Section 6.1 in the ISP as a comment to the first progress meeting whether you have used the form for aligning expectations upon preparing the initial ISP.
